My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife

When I saw this title, how could I not want to read this book.  I'd love to be the Proverbs 31 wife, to take care of my home, husband, child(ren), cook, clean, sew/knit, trade for goods, never go out at night...you know the perfect wife/mom who can do it all.  Who wouldn't want to be that?  Through reading Sara Horn's account of her one year experiment, I learned what the Proverbs 31 woman (Martha 31 as Sara Horn refers to her) really focuses on.

Sara Horn goes through her husband's deployment (2 times during the year), a new job in a new city, publishing a book for her Bible Ministry (and working on this book), an appearance on Focus on the Family, leaving her job and moving back home, and many other minor changes and challenges during this one year experiment.

Not only did I absolutely love this book, but I also would like to do my own experiment, though I would like to do it based on what Ms. Horn discovered at the end of her year rather than from our literal reading of Proverbs 31:10-31.  I would highly recommend this book to any woman who feels that what she does is never enough.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through their blogger review program. I was not required to write a positive review.
